The following information comes from the CDC.

"Getting vaccinated prevents severe illness, hospitalizations, and death. Unvaccinated people should get vaccinated and continue masking until they are fully vaccinated. With the Delta variant, this is more urgent than ever. CDC has updated guidance for fully vaccinated people based on new evidence on the Delta variant.

Here's what you need to know about vaccinations: 

If you are fully vaccinated, you can resume activities that you did prior to the pandemic. Learn more about what you can do when you have been fully vaccinated."

Where Can I Get Vaccinated?

We are currently in Accelerated Phase 2 of the Resilience Roadmap reopening plan. See the State website for more details:


We understand the impact that this crisis is having on local businesses and workers, and will continue to share all available resources to keep our community strong during this crisis.

The DHS Senior Center will be closed until further notice due to COVID-19. (We will re-open earlier if that becomes possible.) 

Meanwhile, the Center will still continue to provide lunches for the seniors of DHS.

We have implemented the following lunch system, which requires a pickup:

Seniors must call anytime after 8:30 am to reserve a lunch spot for that day and to find out their pickup time. We will only have 8 people per half hour picking up lunches to prevent groups gathering.

We know that for many of you, this may be the only meal for the day. So we are asking you to come for the pickup while still taking the Governor's recommendation to self-quarantine very seriously.

We also want to emphasize that while the Center itself is closed, the staff are very much here during business hours. If you have questions, need resources, or even just want someone to talk to, we are here to take your phone call. We also will be checking in on our members via phone.

This is a challenging time, but our community is strong and we will get through it together.
